Manase report ‘out in a few days’

2013-05-31 00:00

CO-OPERATIVE Governance and Traditional Affairs MEC Nomusa Dube said yesterday the controversial Manase forensic investigation report into eThekwini Municipality would be released “within a few days”, but would not specify when.

Dube said at a media briefing yesterday: “There is no time frame. The report will be released.”

She was speaking in response to a media report that the details of the investigation were to be released on Wednesday.

The ANC provincial leadership said in a statement: “The ANC wants to reiterate that the implementation of the report is the responsibility of the eThekwini Municipality, which is working together with all the relevant government authorities.

“We understand that the council could not release the report as it was still processing internal disciplinary cases. We call on the eThekwini Municipality to ensure that all processes are finalised and the report is released for the public,” the party added.

The Democratic Alliance’s George Mari said the entire report, not a sanitised version, should be made public when it was released.

Turning to forensic investigations undertaken in seven municipalities — Nquthu, Umhlabayalingana, Zululand District, Emadlangeni, Indaka, Mandeni and Uthukela District — Dube said 13 criminal cases had been prosecuted, with five arrests and two convictions.
